Seeing the magnificent Northern Lights is a bucket list item for any nature lover.
But did you know that the Northern Lights are caused by charged particles from the Sun?
The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, is the name given to an often-ethereal band or curtain of faint light seen towards the northern horizon. Generally, the light is so faint that the light pollution of even a small town can wash it out.
However, in the dark skies of many of our provincial parks, the Northern Lights can be spectacular.
